STEM Role Models

Now more than ever, the defense of the nation hinges on creativity, imagination, and problem-solving skills. It takes exceptional people to ensure that U.S. military forces maintain their edge in a volatile, uncertain global environment. 

We’re a diversified team: physicists, materials scientists, chemists...we also have an Army researcher who’s a mechanical engineer. It's a very collaborative environment.
